SAN ANTONIO -- The team attempted to keep it private, but San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is doing more than just speaking to reporters about social issues, according to a couple of Twitter posts Monday from scholar and activist Dr. Cornel West and The Nation sports editor Dave Zirin.Over the summer, Popovich reached out to youth from disadvantaged backgrounds. On Sunday, the coach invited West to speak in San Antonio to approximately 350 kids at the Jo Long Theatre of Performing Arts at the Carver Community Cultural Center. The event lasted 3 or 4 hours, Popovich said, and included the entire Spurs team and basketball staff, as well as owners Peter and Julianna Holt.Zirin served as the moderator for the event, which covered the gamut, Popovich said.It was big time. Cornel West is amazing, Spurs guard Manu Ginobili said. Hes been fighting that fight for a long time. Hes very clear, very well-spoken, had a lot of examples and names. He was right there. I had listened to a few of his interviews, and its just mesmerizing to listen to him. So it was good to get to meet him and to listen to him face to face. And if you add that to the fact that there were 350 kids from Sam Houston High School learning and listening, I think it was very powerful. It was a great, great move.Popovich has been outspoken over the years regarding social issues, and he hasnt shied away in recent days from expressing his views regarding the presidential election. This event, however, had been planned well in advance of the election, and the team took its time putting it together because Popovich wanted Sundays town hall with the local youth to be more substantial than a one-time visit.It was about the kids, Popovich said. In todays environment, one can talk a good game about we need this or we need that. We need fewer disparaging remarks. We need more attention to healing the atmosphere for a lot of minority groups, whether its racial or things that have been said about women or handicapped people or any such talk is just talk. But at some point, theres got to be follow-through where people are engaged.The Spurs plan to conduct more outreach activities with local youth. Much of the discussion during Sundays town hall focused on what young minorities face on a daily basis.The purpose of it was to show the kids that even though the environment is as it is, and weve heard some pretty rough talk through the election, that there are people, many people at all levels who value them greatly, Popovich said. They dont need to be as fearful or feel less than because we know who they are. We depend on them for the future.Popovich said the town hall conversation touched on a variety of topics, including race in America, sports, economics and the fatal shooting of a San Antonio police detective during a traffic stop Sunday.Of course that was pretty poignant considering the tragedy we had losing a police officer (Benjamin Marconi) through just horrible violence. But thats what it was all about, Popovich said. The kids were great. It was as simple as that. We just wanted to be there for them so that they know we want to interact with them, and that a lot of people care. Nike Air Max Tn Plus .

LAS VEGAS -- Manny Pacquiao isnt ready to give up his night job just yet.Pacquiao, who said before his last fight in April that he would retire, now plans to return to the ring in November against an opponent who has yet to be selected.Promoter Bob Arum said Tuesday that Pacquiao got permission to take a break from his new duties as a senator in the Philippines to take another fight. It will be held Nov. 5, likely in Las Vegas.He likes to fight and he likes the attention, Arum said of Pacquiaos return.Pacquiao looked impressive in his last fight in April, returning from a layoff to knock down Timothy Bradley on his way to a unanimous decision. After the fight he wavered on his previous plans to retire.If you ask me to come back I dont know, Pacquiao said. I may be enjoying retired life. Im not there yet so I just dont know.Pacquiao, who was formerly a congressman in his native country, was elected to the Senate in May and there were fears that increased duties would prevent him from fighting again.But Arum said the head of the Senate told Pacquiao he was free to fight after the countrys budget is settled on Oct. 15.He would train in the Philippines and leave on the 16th to come to the U.S., train for twoo weeks and then come to Vegas, Arum said.dddddddddddd The only issue is getting an arena for the fight.Arum said he is talking with MGM Resorts about an arena to host the fight. He had reserved the Mandalay Bay arena for Oct. 15, but Pacquaio cant leave his Senate duties that early.The fight also could be at the UNLV campus arena, he said, though UNLV would have to move a scheduled basketball exhibition from the date.There were reports that Pacquiao might fight Adrien Broner, but Arum said he wanted the same money as Pacquiao, which was a non-starter. Another possible opponent would be Jesse Vargas, who fights for Top Rank, and holds a piece of the welterweight title.Pacquiao was off for nearly a year after losing in May 2015 to Floyd Mayweather Jr., healing from a shoulder injury. But he seemed reinvigorated after beating Bradley in April in a performance that got good reviews from most, including trainer Freddie Roach.When I see Manny Pacquiao like that, this is the best Manny Pacquiao, Roach said after the fight. He hasnt missed a beat. I would like to see him fight again. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
